Thanks For The Invite
I want to take this opportunity and thank ST for inviting me to watch over you knuckle-dragging conservatives for the next few days. Hey, don’t be shocked….that’s what EVERYONE thinks about us, didn’t you hear?
All kidding aside, I’m making this post for two reasons: first, I wanted to get my feet wet without falling into the deep end of the pool and doing a Ted Kennedy (or Mary Jo, if you will). I wanted to post this and see if I’m smart enough, good enough, and to find out if, gosh darn it, people like me.
Ok, ok….I promise the entire weekend won’t be like that. =D
Second, I did want to thank her properly for the invite, and to also let everyone know a little bit about me.
My name is Brian and I run the blog Iowa Voice. Coming to a caucus near you.
I’m a hard-right conservative that believes the government that governs least, governs best.
I believe that you alone should decide how to spend your money.
I believe that only parents should be the ones raising their children.
I believe Ronald Reagan was the closest thing to a Saint this country has produced in over 100 years (not counting Lincoln, of course).
I believe that immigration is fine, but illegal immigration should be stopped at all costs, and that we should build a wall all the way to the moon if we have to.
I believe that the war on terror was the right thing to do, regardless of how unpopular it may or may not be.
I think Bush will go down in history as being at least a “near great” President, and that the only thing keeping him off the “Great” list is his failure to advance true conservatism at every opportunity.
I think abortion is wrong in most cases (I support it to save the life of the mother), and that embryonic stem cell research is not only morally wrong, but a huge waste of time and money.
I think we should be drilling for oil every chance we get, wherever it may be. If that means drilling in the Artic and killing a few caribou, I can live with that. Or if it means spoiling the view from the beaches in Florida, I can live with that, too.
I think that Clinton’s policies were the most boneheaded thing to come out of Washington since Prohibition, and his actions (or inactions, rather) over his eight years have led us to where we are today: war in the middle east, a nuclear-armed North Korea, and the most polarized political landscape in recent memory. In short, I think he was a disaster as a President.
I think that Ted Kennedy should be impeached and sentenced to drink cheap booze for the remainder of his days. Not because he drowned a girl in his car or is a traitor to America, but just because he’s a fat, bloated idiot.
I believe we are going to prevail come Election Day. Call me deluded, call me optimistic, but it’s what I think and believe. With the Democrats’ history of shooting themselves, and each other, in the foot, I have more than enough reason to think they’ll do it again.
I literally could go on and on, but it’s time to wrap this up and see how I did. =D
Once again, thanks for inviting me to guest blog this weekend. Should be a lot of fun.
Oh, and don’t forget…I’m allowed to pimp my blog as much as humanly possible this weekend, so you may see a lot of links that lead you there. That’s mainly because I know what all I’ve written in the past two years, so if I have a related item, I’m going to go there. =D
